Nach dem Erstcheck
Provenienzforschung nachhaltig vermittelnVeröffentlichungen des Netzwerks Provenienzforschung in Niedersachsen
The publication collects the contributions of the conference of the same name on 4 November 2019, that was organised by the Network for Provenance Research in Lower Saxony, the Regional Association of Southern Lower Saxony and the municipal Museum of Einbeck. Editors and authors discuss how the results of so-called "first-check" projects of provenance research for the search for and identification of Nazi looted cultural goods in city and regional museums in southern Lower Saxony can be sustainably documented, used in a participatory way and permanently made visible or communicated.
Claudia Andratschke studied art history, history and law and received her doctorate in Tübingen. She has been working as a provenance researcher at the Lower Saxon State Museum of Hannover since 2008, responsible for all departments since 2013 and head of the department of collections and research since 2018. Since 2015, she has also been coordinator and head of the Network for provenance research in Lower Saxony. The main focus of her work, research and networking activities is the search for and identification of cultural assets seized through Nazi persecution and research on cultural goods from colonial contexts.
